Refurbished Janome CoverPro 900CPX Cover Hem Machine
Your garments will have a professional looking finish with a cover stitch. Also known as a cover hem stitch, it was previously available only on sergers. It could usually be found only on the highest-end sergers. With the release of its CoverPro series, Janome has made this sophisticated finish available on a home model that has the power and control of an industrial specialty machine.
The CoverPro 900CPX is an economical model, offering a wide 5mm double-needle cover stitch and a chain stitch. Since it only does these two stitches, it's extremely fast. It zips along up to 1,000 stitches per minute. It's easy to set up and use, too.
Easy To Use, Versatile
It looks more like a regular sewing machine. You'll find familiar features that make it easier to use than a serger. Features such as a full-size sewing bed, free-arm sewing, vertical needle drop and a one-hand thread cutter.
The cover stitch is well suited to stretchy fabrics like knits. It also works well with the popular new blends of traditional woven fabrics that have a small amount of stretch fiber added for extra flexibility. The CoverPro series machines are ideal for constructing projects from fashion tops to competition ice skating costumes.
A cover stitch is a serger-type stitch made without the knives. No fabric is cut. Not only does it finish hems, necklines, collars and cuffs, but it provides decorative effects in the middle of the fabric. Cover stitches can be made with two or three needles. A double needle cover stitch will show two lines of straight stitching on the top of the fabric, with the two lines joined by a "looping" stitch on the bottom side. Because both sides of a cover stitch are finished, it looks great with decorative thread.
This distinctive machine is as powerful as it is useful. Its innovative design is based on the marriage of an industrial-style cover hem machine and a convenient home machine. The result is a high-speed, long arm, heavy-duty cover hem machine that looks and operates like a sewing machine.
It's the perfect companion machine for home decor, quilting and garment making.
Quick Reference Chart
Easy to access on the front of the machine, this full color guide helps you adjust for a soft or tighter stitch without using the manual. The chart clearly displays available stitches, and shows the tension settings.
Free Arm Configuration
Finish sleeves, cuffs, waistbands and other hard-to-reach seams faster and with better handling.
Extra Large Bed Space with Easy Access
The largest sewing space available anywhere: 4 inches x 5.5 inches (100mm x 143mm). Such generous space means you can actually make a cover stitch in the middle of a garment.
Seam Tightening System (STS)
Janome's exclusive Seam Tightening System employs a spring instead of the thread tension dial to reduce in the looper thread. This allows for a tight, flat and sturdy stitch on thick fabrics, and a looser stitch on fabric that requires more flexibility.
The Easiest Threading System
Upper needle threading is color coded, easy to see, and smooth. But it's the lower looper that will really make you smile. It's the easiest ever! Simply pull the thread through, push the looper closed, and you're ready to stitch.
